Store Review: Alternative Outfitters
January 26, 2007
With their refusal to wear animal products (read: no leather, no silk, no cashmere), vegan fashionistas are usually left with few stylish footwear and accessory options. Those that do exist are typically spread over so many stores that it can take a whole day of walking just to assemble a simple outfit. Luckily, the folks at Alternative Outfitters are working hard to bridge that gap, by stocking their online shop with fashionable, high quality, non-leather and cruelty-free products. The site features stylish footwear, like the smoking Brown Kitten Heel Tweed Vegan Pumps, accessories (wallets, watches, and cell phone pouches), handbags (the Brown Faux Shearling Hobo Style Vegan Handbag makes for a great everyday bag), as well as skin care, hair care, and cosmetics. The site also features Pamela Anderson’s Jewelry and Belt collections which benefit PETA. With fashionable designs, and wallet friendly prices (most items on the site retail for less than fifty dollars), Altenative Oufitters is a shop that even non-vegans can love.
